Skip to comments.Now 'conservatives' are twisting Scripture

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: Revelation 22:18
I've seen some incredibly stupid and misguided initiatives by "conservatives" in my day, but this one takes the cake.
Because the Bible has been rewritten to conform with the agenda of "liberals," a self-described "conservative" is spearheading an effort to rewrite it to his liking.
If you think I'm joking, read on.

This guy doesn’t have to rewrite the Bible to be conservative, the vast majority of translations already are. Who gives a fig about these liberal translations.
My use of a “conservative” is to be understood in opposition to “liberal” translations which teach same sex marriage, Christ was a socialist revolutionary, etc.
I’m right with you. That is my exact same stance.
To say it a bit more clearly:

Bible teacher John MacArthur tells a story of when he was at a prayer breakfast and a republican consultant said his fav Bible verse was John 16:3. Oops.
what the heck liberals twist scripture too
and we have been in last days for how long now???
I hear you but it is really looking close.
Pre-Christian Jews wrote of “the end of days.” New Testament writers wrote of “the last days.” Post-Apostolic writers (2nd through the 4th century AD) wrote of the last days. The Bible gives us all kinds of signs to recognize the last days.
Because some have been premature in their interpretation of those signs, does not negate the validity of them.
no but it kind of calls up chiken little syndrome to some ...
Yes but my point is that we are not going to have our cause blessed by God when some of us are messing with the scriptures. We already knew the liberals are all going to hell. lol
People have believed that we’re really close for the last 2000 years. Every few years for the last twenty centuries there has been a wave of hystericals folks convinced that the end is nigh. If you think the Obama Presidency is bad, start reading about the Black Death in 1348, which everyone knew was a tribulation from the impending Apocalypse. The same folks predicting doom now predicted it in the 90s, 80s, 70s, etc. One bad President does not an Armageddon make.
just not soon enough to help us out of this mess
ROTFL Yes, if I had my way they’d all been there years ago.
Unless one is perfect, the Bible will pinch uncomfortably somewhere or other. The Bible is not the one which is deformed though . . .
Alter it to fit at your own risk and to your own confusion.
That’s right. When you alter the Truth you make a lie.
